that attacks or the united states, there will be an iranian retaliation against israel. when obama talks about all military options on the ground, of course he doesn't want to repeat an iraq scenario of taking over the country, although one thing may lead to another. i think the assumption is if the united states reaches a position, in which all diplomacy has been exhausted and there is no other choice but to launch some kind of a strike against iran, then united states will be able to take care of whatever launchers iran has that could threaten israel and provide some kind of assistance and missile defense to protect the israelis. it won't be 100% in fool proof protection but it can go a long way in assuring israelis. >> all right. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >>> up next, biden and bloomberg together and taking on gun violence today. what meaningful reform are we actually going to get? the assault weapons ban is out. the fate of background checks is uncertain. the bill headed to the senate floor. a far cry of ambitions. we're talking guns. >> i get it. >> for thursday, mar
and prosperity. at a joint news conference, president obama said his administration is working with congress to provide jordan with an additional $200 million in aide in the year to cope with the massive in flux of refugees streaming into the country from syria where there is a civil war going on. i'm harris faulkner. now, back to "huckabee." >> mike: this week the capital murder trial of dr. kermit gosnel charged with the murders of 7 babies and one patient started in philadelphia. back in 2010 h his abortion clinic was searched by police investigating the ill legal selling of prescription drugs. but instead they found what was described as a house of horrors. we want to warn you that the descriptions of the clinic and its procedures are graphic. >> in early 2011 philadelphia prosecutors released the disturbing grand jury report on the women's medical center owned by dr. kermit gosnell. the doctor, his wife and 8 employee hes were all arrested. the clinic was filled with unspeakable horrors. body parts found in garbage bags. unsan tare arery operating rooms and insufficient equipment to pro
country to country, no matter who the leader is, and it's particularly important because of the issue of iran and syria. no doubt, the obama white house will have to be dealing with. >> he is back wanting to deal with domestic issues including gun control. after sandy hook we all understood there was a narrow window to get change, meaningful change in terms of gun laws. what has happened now in terms of the assault weapons ban, and where all this goes? >> well, the question is whether the moment is effectively lost. i think that's a real question inside the white house among democrats and gun control supporters. the assault weapons ban will get a vote, but it's not going to pass. the big focus is on background checks, and the big political focus is not going away. i sat down with new york city mayor michael bloomberg who talked about his own big push to spend money to target lawmakers. he has taken names based on how they vote on the assault weapons ban. >> i think i have a responsibility, and i think you and all of your viewers have responsibilities to try to make this country safer
is accusing phil of lying to the whole country. in february phil predicted that spring would come early. many states are still seeing snow. the indictment is a little tongue and cheek. >>> we want to show you this live. president obama right there live just about to leave israel. heading to jordan. he's at the airport in tel aviv. he just spent 20 minutes meeting with benjamin netanyahu. the president is about to leave israel. heading to jordan. we'll have all the details coming up. >>> let's go back over to sal as we get closer to 7:00. >> we are looking at the toll plaza. there is a little bit of a wave here pam and dave westbound. it's not bad. if you are driving in san jose, southbound 280 we have the two right lanes closed. now to bill. >>> we are looking at temperatures today. they will be warmer than yesterday. that is a good thing. we'll see temperatures in the 60s and low 70s. current numbers outside low 40s. it will be a nice looking 24 hours when i get back on mornings on 2 at 7:00 we will show you the five-day forecast and the nex
in syria. reports of a chemical weapons attack in the country's second largest city. it confirmed this -- if confirmed it would be a real game changer and if it crosses president obama's red line and could impact of hundreds of millions of dollars of aid we give to syria. details are still coming in. the state department has not confirmed the allegation chemical weapons were used. we have the president and founder of the american islamic forum for democracy. always nice to have you. let me ask you, how serious is this? how big of a deal is it? >> as we've been saying for almost two years now, no conflict has been worse in the world than what is going on in syria. assad's regime will stop at nothing. i have a family in aleppo. while they're safe there are millions of aleppo and all over syria are at risk. i think this may have been a trial balloon. we talk to some of our network physicians, we were skyping, a friend of mine was skyping at the hostile that received injured. it was clear that they had injuries with probably chemical related, pupils and broncho restriction that appear
the country's tried to take, the government's tried to take a big step forward, under the clinton administration and then under the first year of the obama administration. and each time the senate killed it. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back h
states aimed at keeping african-americans in even voting? wasn't the country's number one birther, donald trump speaker at the conservative convention? and sarah palin letting loose about the latest crack, the need to check president obama's background? priebus talks about getting the true nature of the party out to the public. he says it's been a communications problem. wasn't the most excellent communication of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the grio joy reid. i'm just wondering, w
for the attack. president obama announced his pick for labor secretary today, assistant attorney general thomas perez. at the white house, the president said perez' story is a reminder of the country's promise. perez is the son of immigrants from the dominican republic. if confirmed, perez would head the labor department as the president pushes an overhaul of immigration laws and a minimum wage increase. the small community of steubenville, ohio, will back a wider investigation into the rape of a 16-year-old girl. yesterday, a judge found trent mays and ma'lik richmond guilty of sexually assaulting the girl after a party when she was too drunk to move or speak. the high school football players were sentenced to at least one year in juvenile prison and must register as sex offenders. next month a grand jury will consider whether those who failed to speak up-- including parents and coaches-- can be charged. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to judy. >> woodruff: the day's biggest economic story came from europe, where old worries about debt, bailouts, and public anger found new
country. the rebels immediately denied those claims and instead accused the syrian regime of launching the attack. president obama has made clear in the past that in his view, the use of chemical weapons by either side in syria would change the rules for our involvement in syria. chief washington correspondent james rosen is live from the white house with more. >> the pentagon has been more definitive than the white house telling us they have yet no confirmation, no confirmation that chemical weapons have been used by either side in the syrian civil war, it was syrian state-run television that first made the allegation, broadcasting images purporting to show the victims of the chemical attack being treated near the syrian border. assadd blamed the rebels and the white house stated there is no evidence the rebels used such weapons and the officials here are deeply skeptical of such claims by the regime. >> i can tell you that we are assessing the reports about the possible use of chemical weapons, as well as the reports about the origins of possible chemical weapons in syria. and no o
on what drives millenials. >> president obama is in israel tonight on his first trip to the country since taking office. the two leaders held a joint news conference following their meetings answering questions on the iranian nuclear program and the two state solution. this is 40 minutes. >> mr. president, it is a great pleasure to host you here in jerusalem. you have graciously hosted me many times in washington. i'm pleased to have this opportunity to reciprocate. i hope the goodwill and the warmth of the people of israel. >> very much so. >> we had an opportunity to begin discussions on a wide reins of -- range of issues. including this is the iran pursuit of nuclear weapons. you have made it clear that you are determined to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. i appreciate your forthright position. i also appreciate that you have noted and have acted to thwart this threat, both through diplomacy and strong sanctions that are getting stronger yet. notwithstanding our joint efforts and your great success in mobilizing international community, diplomacy and sanctions so far have

[inaudible] [laughter] >> in presidential politics -- as the country moves to a next generation of readership, they rarely if ever reach back and bring in an older generation. to a certain extent that was a factor for senator mccain in running against president obama in part the effect of governor romney right now and that is an interesting dynamic answers out of the two most likely nominees are going to be on the democratic side. there's a lot of pressure leadership in the republican party that will bring about a generational change that will be very hoped we. marco rubio, paul ryan, alisa to, bobby jindal. a very clear shift moving forward. one other thing is his numbers have been rising pretty dramatically and i'm pretty sure 50% is not upside down and i suspect to see that with governors as well. >> comcast chairman and ceo brian roberts spoke at the economic club of washington. robert sarver founded comcast in 1963 feet condition for the future of
a major blow to syria's embattled president. the country's main rebel group insists, though, it is not responsible. >>> president obama wraps up his visit to israel later today and meets with the king of jordan one of the u.s. top allies in the region. president obama took his case for peace directly to the israeli people. abc's john karl is traveling with the president. >> reporter: even as president obama came to the holyland to talk peace rockets fired into a gaza strip hit in a town in israel. with rockets flying and peace talks going nowhere, the president by passed mideast leaders and instead talked directly to the next generation. 600 israeli college students. >> part of the reason i like talking to young people is because no matter how great the challenges are, their idealism, their energy, their ambition, always gives me hope. >> reporter: he told the young israelis to put themselves in the shoes of young palestinians. >> look at the world through their eyes. it is not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of their own. >> reporter: for now israel
their opinion. under george w. bush fell to a low of 12% approval. obama was elected. approval was 92%. the study population of haters? now, people who make discriminating judgment on the basis of how they assess the new leader of the same country and many western europeans and people in other places weren't happy with the leader they saw as an articulate proponent of unilateral u.s. action to seem to have a swagger and a second in the interests and opinions. when the president left office, a new president seemed to be good at articulating why was in the u.s. interest to behave multilaterally, to see cooperation and so forth and also embodied a set of ideals that people like about america like the united states is a land of opportunity where anything is possible. so there isn't a deep and underlying consistent hatred of the united states. that's actually quite rare. within foreigners are able to make distinguishing judgments about different aspects of the united states. >> host: why should we care what your think of us? when's the last taboo roster with that of angela merkel? >> guest
provisional prime minister. one expert on syria says the country now is headed for a complete meltdown if the obama administration doesn't stop hedging its bets. >> we waited, it didn't get any better. president assad is not stepping aside, and the opposition is becoming more extremist, because they are the ones receiving the political support and the arms. >> ironically, this lack of unity among the opposition is only reenforcing the administration's belief that it should be cautious in what kind of help and assistance it provides the opposition. kate? >> jill dougherty, thanks so much, jill. >>> you heard in jill's piece, mike rogers. the michigan republican is joining me live from lansing, michigan, for more on this. mr. chairman, thanks so much for taking the time. >> thanks, kate, great to hear you. >> this is such an important issue, specifically on the issue of chemical weapons. there's been a lot of back and forth over the last week. u.s. officials, they say that their intelligence is telling them at the moment that they've indicated chemical weapons have been used recently by
it has now. >> senator, how would you describe the obama administration's relationship with putin? is he an effective partner in any way? can he be trusted in any way? >> well, i don't think any major country bases its national policy on trust of others. it really is ultimately based on self interest and what we think is in the interest of our own country and our own policies. i think there are some areas where our interests will coincide and we can cooperate, others where they're not. just obvious, syria is a major issue now. russia's longstanding friendship with the syrian government and its relationship there will make it difficult for it to part ways with assad, but they recognize, i think already, that they must do so and are embarking on a transition there. russia's relationship with iran is very important. remember, they once shared a long border when russia was the soviet union, and they've had a fraught relationship on and off at times. so we can enlist their support sometimes and other times that will not be the case. but we have to be patient and firm. again, our policies shou

, with previous, and they just cut each other out, but then obama just ran on the bandwagon. it's kind of a complicated thing, but i'm hoping that they can turn things around and get our country back on the road again. host: you bring up the issue of free phones. that became an issue in the election. stay tuned for the last segment of the "washington journal" today. we'll talk about the fund, the federal fund that helped fund those phones. but up next, we'll talk about the latest developments in the debate over immigration reform. and later, grover nor quist will give us his take on the two sides reaching a grand bar ban over the budget. we'll be right back. >> a more private first lady, elizabeth monroe refused to continue the tradition of making social calls to washington's political society. she spoke french inside the white house and gained a reputation of being queenly by her critics. we'll explore her relationship with her husband, james monroe and she close friendship with her successor, louis acatherine adams, who was the only first lady born outside the u.s. we'll see the impo
obama is hoping to restart long-stalled peace talks between israel and palestine. mr. obama's departure marks one of the rare times when both the president and the vice president are both traveling out of the country at the same time. >> another major politician, a change on gay marriage. hillary clinton, presidential candidate potentially, she supports the rights of gays and lesbians to marry. according to our latest poll, clinton is not the only american changing her views as the supreme court is consider this issue. good morning. >> good morning, john, diana. you know, gay marriage is legal now in nine states and banned in 31 others. but there is a seismic shift in american's perceptions about gay rights. a shift hillary clinton is reflecting. former secretary of state hillary clinton announced her support for same-sex marriage. >> i support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. >> reporter: clinton's announcement in line with an abc news/"washington post" poll on the subject showing support for gay marriage at an all-time h
? >> first of all, as a country, particularly to washington they're addicted to spending. we created this massive point -- >> you're on there. that's your winning -- you got the win card right there. >> manufacturing, obama says those jobs are gone forever. >> he does not say that, actually. >> when did he say that? >> president obama did not say that. >> we've got to admit those jobs are gone. >> no. >> some. >> he worked hard to bring back manufacturing. >> perhaps most typical -- let's get back to our report. reince priebus, it's about communication but the party never tried to stop to distant franchise, mainly poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters
candidates, president obama, governor romney, agreed on one thing and that was that the people of this country faced a fundamental choice in the direction we were going to take. and the american people voted and they resoundedly rejected the approach that is now taken once again for the third year in a row in this republican budget. this budget, as we've heard over the last couple days, fails on a number of counts. number one, it adopts the european style austerity approach that we've seen slow down economies in many parts of europe. we should instead be focusing on job growth and putting people back to work rather than a budget like this budget which will result in 750,000 fewer americans working by the end of this year. that's according to the independent nonpartisan congressional budget office. and it will result in more than two million fewer people working next year. it also fails the test of taking a balanced approach. because it is founded on the failed idea that combiffing another round of tax cuts to people at the very high end of the income scale will somehow trickle
i noticed in my travels around the country this people ing tpeople -- people think this is getting do done. you can drive a truck through the loopholes. >> there has been consternation, people say, look, we just saw mr. obama in israel saying without being pushed, politicians won't do the right thing. should we push him more? should he be pushed more to make this narrative central? >> sure. i think the more pressure there is from the public having a once in a generation conversation how we deal with guns in this country, sure, i think they should be telling the president they support his work and want him to do as much as he can. i have to say as someone in the room today in city hall with mayor bloomberg and joe biden, doing as much as they can, i'm not sure they need a fire under them. the last time we had a weapons ban passed in the senate, who was in the room? joe biden. >> a lot of americans worry if they support this kind of lesslation they will be out of office soon. any truth to that? >> in november of 2012 the nra spent more than $100,000 on only seven races. six of their
of entitlement reform that mr. corker and frankly president obama are talking about. >> senator corker and i certainly agree on the fact that one of the best things we can do is come up with a long term plan to deal with this country's debt and deficit, but one that also allows us to grow the economy in the meantime and obviously i've said all along we got to look at all aspects of the budget, we need to look at the mandatory programs and there are a lot of democrats who are willing to do that but we also need to look at revenues because we're not going get where we need go unless we look at everything. >> i got to leave it there. tax reform lower the marginal rates and get rid of the loopholes that's all i'll say about revenues. senator jean shaheen thank you very much. bob corker great to see you, sir. now, folks, did the london whale trade fiasco cost jamie dimon a job? that's coming up next on kudlow. that's not much, you think. except it's 2% every year. go to e-trade and find out how much our advice and guidance costs. spoiler alert: it's low. it's guidance on your terms, not ours. e-t
. we have difficult issues to work through within our own countries and face dangers and upheaval around the world. >> martin, how was president obama received by the israelis? >> very well, craig. prepare them for the peace process for the israelis, the road ahead. when he spoke to these students in the hall, you know, he was greeted with much more applause than anybody really expected, including several standing ovations. the newspaper reports afterwards were unanimous saying he made a great impression but everyone now is looking a what the does this mean really, practically speaking? what is the next step on the ground? now secretary of state john kerry is in town, meeting with the israeli prime minister, trying to get israel and the palestinians to the table, to the peace talks table. that's what israelis are looking for. he sounded good, said all the right things, what happens next? that is the question israelis and palestinians are asking now. craig? >> diana, that's the view from the israelis. what was the view from the palestinians' perspective of the president's visit? >>
eyes saying am i believing this? those cutouts of president obama and prime minister netanyahu, well, they are hamming it up there to the golden girls theme song "thank you for being a friend." it's playing up the alliance between the two countries. >> yeah. the embassy actually released that trailer via twitter yesterday saying the state and people of israel know america will always have israel's back when it comes to israel's security. >>> here's more of what we're working on this hour for "around the world." every day we're learning something new about pope francis. >> we are, aren't we? in fact, back when he was a cardinal he supported civil unions for same sex couples. now, what this could mean for the future of the catholic church we will discuss that. >> plus, british prime minister david cameron wants to give money to working parents to help with child care. sounds great, but stay at home moms are furious over the way his spokesperson explained it. >> yes. it was all in the words. >>> also, if you see an asteroid heading your way, nasa's advice there's really nothing you can
choice. look where obama is in d.c. if you look at sool choice there, he spent three years arguing against funding the d.c. scholarship program. >> where do you see the brightness? >> -- the lowest rate in the entire country. we can't give up on those issues. >> where do you see the brightness? you said the future looks bright. the rnc doesn't seem to think so. >> no, the republican party, all this inner discussion between different wings, this is normal. if you read michael duffy's book "the president's club" this is nothing new. this is something that has gone on since nixon and reagan and it happened in the liberal party, too. the democratic party as well. the reason it's a bright time for the republicans is because in the last three weeks, we've had a lot of victories. look at rand paul, drawing attention to the fifth amendment constitutional violations of this administration. look at the sequestration. it was supposed to be a big disaster and it hasn't been. >> you're saying things look bright. >> look at the continuing resolution on obama care that is wildly unapproved by the
that began 10 years ago when president george w. bush launched a war of choice in iraq. dragging our country into a costly, bitter conflict based on falsehoods and hyperbole. it took president obama fulfilling his campaign promise to end the iraq war and we are grateful that he brought the war to an end. but we must not forget how we got into the war in the first place. so that these mistakes are not repeated. we were told there were weapons of mass destruction. we were warned about mushroom clouds. now i offered an amendment at the time that would have taken us down a different path. it would have required the united states to work through the united nations inspectors and maximizing diplomacy to determine whether or not iraq was developing weapons of mass destruction. unfortunately my amendment failed by a vote of 72-355. what happened from there we all know the tragic consequences. president bush dragged this country into an unnecessary war. no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. the cost of the iraq war soared far beyond what was projected. we lost 4,400 american troops in iraq
and then was expanded in the obama administration. but the obama administration, like the chinese, hasot admitted to having offensive cyber warriors so it's hard to imagine how we're going to have an honest conversation with the chinese about limiting these activities if neither country will even admit to owning weapons. >> rose: how much of the hacking comes from the united states and has nothing to do or is not even in any way monitored by the u.s. government? >> well hard thing to know becauset's very difficult to collec statistics thi aa. the u.s. government says that unlike the chinese, they do not do any hacking in order to steal corporate secrets. they're not out hacking on behalf of american companies. they only participate in operations that are focused on defending and that include the critical infrastructure. the infrastructure of the united states isn't in government hands it's mowly in private hands with a few ceptions and ey're having a hard time dng that. >> rose: are the chinese better at hacking than we are. >> they are certainly higher volume hackers but the sophistication of
million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads. [ bop ] [ bop ] [ bop ] you can do that all you want, i don't like v8 juice. [ male announcer ] how about v8 v-fusion. a full serving of vegetables, a full serving of fruit. but what you taste is the fruit. so even you... could've had
failure. >> i don't know what transcripts of president obama you've been listening to, he never said any of the things that you-- >> i didn't read them,4 when pr alienated so many countries and supposed to be a coalition in iraq and i heard conservatives say we don't care what the rest of the world says, we're the united states and we don't care what they have to say. >> alan. >> now all of a sudden it's a big issue. >> alisyn: go ahead, ben. >> first of all, i didn't mention mubarak, you did. but i'll say that the foreign policy that the republicans are behind, conservatives are behind, the foreign policy where we have a strong standing with israel and we have a strong standing against terrorism, and if that means that people don't like us, we're okay with that. and we don't need to be loved, we want to be respected. and the problem was in 2009, and the reason why now you have this failure and a 180 by the president, he wanted to be loved by everyone and try to make everyone just, you know, do kind of what he wanted to do, which is also not realistic, so now you have a problem. >> all r
, this entire thing. people in this country need help. everybody knows it, and the reason i am calling is president obama at some point has said that what we ought to do is give doctors the money, extra healthfor preventive care. you go into a doctor's office nowadays, and the first thing he does is give you a pill. a lot of people, they will give you samples. a lot of of people don't know, but these doctors get money for pressuring certain pills. and i think that is absolutely wrong. evidently, it is not illegal. i think somebody ought to look into that, because it would bring down the cost of everything. it would make people a lot healthier, because you would get and in ar, possibly better way. it would just keep a lot of these banks out of the ointment -- snakes. mitch mcconnell put out a statement on the three-year anniversary of obamacare -- host: we want to show you more of what the senator had to say. this is a statement they put out on youtube. [video clip] the excessesms up like obamacare. .0,000 pages, seven feet tall they are just getting started. everything they promised ab
's roughly the fifth largest is he it the country. that's why the president pledged another $200 million in additional aid, and mr. obama also pushed back at some criticisms of why the u.s. has not intervened militarily in syria. take a listen. >> you know, i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily it's criticized, and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> reporter: the president should be back in the u.s. just shy of midnight tonight, but while mr. obama heads home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as
. >> heavy counted the number of countries have traveled to? guest: about 120. 1 of the questions to post to president obama on the affordable care act, syria's bill plante. thank you mr. president. anybody on capitol hill will say that there is no chance that the american jobs act in its current state passes either house. you have been out on the campaign trail baying away to pass this bill. it begins to look like you're campaigning and following the harry truman model against the do-nothing congress instead of negotiating. are you negotiating? >> what is true is they need to do something. the question then is will congress do something? if congress does something i cannot run against a do-nothing congres. if a congress does nothing than it is not a matter of me running against them, the american people or run them out of town. host: did he answer your question? guest: and no, he turned to his advantage. was is therereally any point in continuing to talk about the american jobs act if in fact it is not going to pass, which everyone agrees it would not. this is a campaign ploy. he turned
this is going to strengthen president obama's hand going after the money marketed overseas whether it's rich people or corporations? >> and he signed the foreign asset tax compliance act forcing banks in other countries to reveal who are-- who are the americans that have money and how much and that was obviously controversial. americans and europeans and other places not happy about it, but this gives him a chance to say, listen, this is-- these tax havens, they're not even safe for you, americans. >> that's right, what's wrong with taking russian mob money. why not do that. i think it gives him the case. i notice, however, that france, they're not going through with their 75% tax rate, because that was forcing people out of these tax havens, but they're not going through. >> that's right, he they just announced that they are-- the president's dropping his-- that was for over a year he's been talking and definitely going to do it and gerard depardieu, one of the people, i'm leaving france. let's look at that, why do people put money in tax havens in the first place, why not go to the cause t
. president obama is making a speech. before the israeli people at the jerusalem convention center. let's listen. >> i believe you will shape our future and given the ties between our countries, i believe your future is bound to ours. . >> this is part of the lively debate we talked about. this is good. . >> you know, i have to say we actually arranged for that. because it made me feel at home. i wouldn't feel comfortable if i didn't have one heckler. i'd like to focus on how we and when i say we in particular, young people. can work together to make progress in three areas that will define our ties. security, peace and prosperity. let me begin with security. i'm proud the security relationship between the united states and israel has never been stronger. never. more exercises in the militaries. more exchanges among political and military officials than ever before. help you retain your qualitative military edge. these are my opinions. these are facts. but to me this is not simply measured on a balance sheet. i know that here in israel, security is something personal. here's what i thin
leave everything to government. now, i thought that when we came to this country several hundred years ago, we left the king behind. we certainly thought we did until king obama started his rein. two thing -- reign. two things that i took away from the book that i think are important. number one is some parts of the federal government hate successful businesses, and they show it through tax or regulatory policy or extortion. look at the epa, the endangered species act and, of course, the nlrb dealing with boeing. in the book, the best steel, the best railroads, the best of everything was torn down and given away to the worst and most incompetent. they had to turn over the fruiteds of ingenuity and imagination to those who can't do as well, and in the book, finally, atlas shrugged. atlas being the wonderful giant who kept the world going, they went on strike and changed the world. secondly, government is incapable of managing success. it's been four years since congress passed a budget. what would happen to your small his if you tried that approach? and by the way, can you imagine the w
their opinion under george w. bush's fell to a low of 12% within a couple of years obama was elected approval was 92%. was that a population of haters? no. people who could make discriminating judgments on how they assessed the new leader of the same country. many western europeans and others were unhappy with the leader they saw the unilateral action who would have a swagger in his step with no interest in their opinion and when he left office in the new president came in who seemed to be good at articulating why it was in u.s. interest to seek cooperation and embody a set of ideals that we are land of opportunity of a sudden the states was popular. that all the a consistent hatred but that is rare. we find foreigners can make distinguishing judgments. >> host: why should we care what germans think of us? when is the last time we were asked about angela merkle? >> they're actually quite interested and. >> host: why? >> because united states has a lot of power and resources and when we get a cold day get pneumonia. when we decide to use our tremendously powerful military machine united states
more than a year since president obama ended war in iraq bringing the u.s. troops home. with little influence left in that war-torn country trying to rebuild the secretary is having trouble urging iraq's leaders to stop aiding iran and allowing the overflights of iran, what we believe to be weapons, ammunitions over to syria. the iranians are using iraqi airspace to make that happen. john kerry wants it to stop. how did he do? joining me now a man who fought in that war, c.e.o. of concerned veterans for america, pete hegseth. how much leverage does the skraeufrt have? >> not very much. you might say that this is our chickens coming home to roost. when you don't follow through and don't have influence and don't have a relationship then the prime minister of iraq is more likely to hedge towards iran and his neighbors to the east than he is to help us because we don't have that influence. the folks we have left in baghdad don't have a mandate to operate. john kerry shows up asking for a favor and he can't get one. >>brian: he can't get one because they don't need us right now. but they
